If this virus is persisent, you'd probably be better doing a full format.

"Quick format" if I remember right, simply creates a blank FAT, and doesn't actually erase the data from the drive, check for bad sectors, etc.

Well, if they are reinstalling windows, "Virus" is a close-enough description ;)
